Cool Track Bike Build Thread

Just picked up my R3 the other day and it's destined for the track. Figured maybe I'd start a build thread here to chronicle my progress. Here she is just after landing in my garage.

Right on dude! I also have a build going, see my signature... I was also this close to picking red, but decided to go with blue for the blue rims Do you ever make it down to the socal tracks? Chuckwalla, Buttonwillow, or Willow Springs?

Cheers,
Jesse

Black is the fastest - everyone knows that. And your garage is too clean.

Yeah, I've looked at your page before. Good stuff!

Not down to socal much. I've only been to Streets once for a CSS class. I mostly go to Sonoma and Thunderhill these days.

Oh yeah. I have a pile of mods on their way to me right now. Here's two (Sato Rearsets and a Cox racing radiator guard). Gonna put them on tonight/tomorrow.
